New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION - T.N. ALAGESH

BE­ING the youngest stu­dent at his re­li­gious school, Mo­ham­mad Aimin Nurul Amin, 7, was doted by the mar­ried cou­ple who ran the cen­tre.

Lit­tle did Aimin re­alise that his close ties with the cou­ple, who were his teacher (the hus­band) and war­den (the wife), had led to jeal­ousy among a group of stu­dents there, who were be­lieved to have at­tacked him.

Aimin, who died on Thurs­day, had bruises on his body.

State po­lice chief Datuk Abd Jalil Has­san said jeal­ousy led to a group of stu­dents at the re­li­gious school in Kam­pung Kuala Kuang, Lan­chang, Te­mer­loh, to at­tack Aimin and hit him with a hard ob­ject.

He said Aimin, the youngest among the stu­dents, was pam­pered by the cou­ple who op­er­ated the cen­tre.

“The stu­dents were en­vi­ous, lead­ing them to have a fight with Aimin.

“A post-mortem re­vealed that Aimin’s in­juries could have been in­flicted by a blunt and hard ob­ject. The im­pact of the at­tack led to trauma on the chest and ab­domen.”

Jalil said three sus­pects, all 13, in­clud­ing the vic­tim’s step­brother, had been re­manded un­til Thurs­day.

Aimin, who was found with se­vere bruises on his body and face, died at the Lan­chang health clinic in Te­mer­loh about 2pm.

Ear­lier, the war­den tried to wake Aimin up for prayers about 1pm and re­alised that his legs were cold. She and her hus­band rushed Aimin to the clinic.

The case is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated un­der Sec­tion 302 of the Pe­nal Code for mur­der.
